Our Veterinary Support Team

 

Sandi Edwards Veterinary Assistant

Sandi joined the clinic team in September 2020 and has an avid passion for all animals large and small. Having ventured into veterinary nursing studies several years ago, Sandi is pleased to be able to use her knowledge to help our valued clients and patients. On the weekends you will find Sandi and her dogs out on the farm amongst the cows and horses, enjoying the quiet country lifestyle.  

James Webb Veterinary Assistant

James has been a member of the team for his whole life, cutting his teeth at cow calvings and odd jobs around the clinic. A veritable 'Boy Friday'. Although his main work is in hospitality, James works most days helping in reception, and knows exactly what the vet needs when she calls out for an endo tube or a fluid line (and knows some even bigger words that the vet occasionally uses...).  James has a beautiful orange tabby cat, called 'Haley', who has attitude, and also occasionally goes riding on 'Çookie-man', his chestnut Quarterhorse who lives on the property.

Karrie Ashby  Veterinary Assistant

Certificate II in Animal Studies 

Karrie has been an integral part of the Clinic team for many years, although now this is her secondary job. Karrie originally completed a school-based traineeship through the local High School, gaining a Certificate II in Animal Studies at the end of 2014.

Karrie has 2 dogs, a Boxer named Rambo and a Border Collie named Rascal, plus two little Dachshunds called Amani (expensive tastes!) and her daughter Sharon (even more attitude!). Karrie loves to ride her first horse Jewels....when she can catch her. Karrie now has accumulated several mares, and has been working one-on-one with her foal from last year, with brilliant results, so more breeding is planned. Attendance at Nanango Ladies Panthers games, Campdrafts, Rodeos,  PBR Competitions and Ute Shows occupy most of Karries' spare time.

 

Tezni Edwards  School-based trainee

Tezni joined us mid-2020 as a helper after school, and this has now morphed into a School-based Traineeship. With an avid interest in horses, and loads of experience riding in the ring to boot, Tezni has now embarked on a career path in an industry that we all love and value highly. We, the clinic team and all our clients and patients, are proud to be your teachers Tez!  

Serena Barber Veterinary Assistant 

Serena hails from Wondai and loves horses. Having completed work experience with the clinic in 2009, Serena continued on staff as a veterinary assistant for some time. Serena then concentrated on her Miniature Horse Stud 'Painted Crystal Miniatures', competing at both State and Nationals as a member of the Australian Miniature Horse Society, the Miniature Horse Association of Australia and the Independent Miniature Horse Registry. Serena then re-joined the clinic staff, and completed many subjects towards her Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing. Apart from owning loads of miniature horses and 2 American Shetlands, Serena shares her home (figuratively speaking) with her 2 menfolk (including her gorgeous little boy), 2 dogs, a Sharpei x called Dory, and a Border Collie called Pup. 

Katelyn Beresford Veterinary Assistant

Katelyn grew up here in the district, and enjoys helping out on the family farm with the cattle, dogs, horses and irrigation crops. Now studying Business at University in Toowoomba, Katelyn joined the staff to assist here on her days off. Katelyn is very interested in veterinary work and animals in general. 

Ryan Webb Helper

Ryan has grown up as a son of the clinic and really enjoys helping the Veterinarian (his mum) when he is here. We greatly appreciate our clients saying hi to Ryan and encouraging him. Ryan spent 2016 at TAFE learning numeracy, literacy and hospitality, and now works at Kingaroy Kitchens 3 days a week. Here he is pictured with one of the family dogs Harry (who's actually a girl dog but named after Harry Potter).
